Based on our experience, and referenced in many, many works on the subject, DTG recommends everyone learn, practice, and know how to tie the following knots:
One Handed Bowline
Double Fisherman’s (Grapevine) Knot
In the following weeks, we’ll explore how each of these knots are tied, their advantages, disadvantages, and possible situations where they would be needed.
A two foot length 550 Cord, or Paracord, is a good tool to use to practice knot tying. It’s easily hidden in a pocket, readily accessible when you might have a few spare minutes, and costs literally pennies.
Ok, time to start practicing!
